  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over the pronunciation of

  • the word 'favorite'.

  • This week's Word of the Week is 'favorite'. It can be pronounced with three syllables,

  • but most of the time you'll hear it with two, favorite, favorite. So, it begins with the

  • F consonant sound, ff, ff, then we have the AY as in SAY diphthong.

  • Make sure your jaw drops for that first sound of the diphthong, fa-, fa-.

  • Then we have the V consonant sound,

  • same position as the F, only this time it's voiced, fav- fav.

  • And the R consonant, IH as in SIT vowel, T, -rite, -rite. It's unstressed. -rite.

  • We may release the T, to make a True T sound,

  • or we may keep the tongue up in the T position, and not release the T,

  • making it a stop sound. Favorite, favorite, or favorite, favorite, with a light release. Favorite.

  • This is my favorite restaurant.

  • That's it, your Word of the Week. Try it out yourself. Make up a sentence with the

  • word, record it, and post it as a video response to this video on YouTube. I can't wait to

  • watch it.

  • That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
